Is The Biden Campaign In A Death Spiral?
Biden placed 4th in Iowa and then ran away from the New Hampshire Primary, apparently afraid of how bad he was going to lose. It looks like Biden is concerned about his weak performances so far. Does he think that running away instills confidence in his supporters?
"The former vice president abruptly announced on Tuesday morning that he won’t spend primary night in New Hampshire as planned and instead is flying to South Carolina to headline a newly scheduled kick-off rally in the state he’s long considered his campaign firewall.
“We’re going to head to South Carolina tonight,” Biden told reporters as he visited a polling station with voting underway in the state that holds the first primary in the race for the White House. “And I’m going to Nevada… we’ve got to look at them all.”
The campaign confirmed Biden is now canceling his originally scheduled appearance at a primary night party in Nashua, N.H., and will be in South Carolina instead. The New Hampshire party will go on as scheduled without him."
"Biden’s surprise decision to exit the state for South Carolina — where his campaign is throwing a “launch party” — is the latest tactic in his strategy to shift the focus from his big loss in Iowa and his expected defeat in New Hampshire."
When "asked what message he’s sending to voters in New Hampshire by leaving, Biden essentially repeated himself.
“My message is that I’ve got to get to South Carolina,” he said. “I’ve gotta get to Nevada after that. I’m going to South Carolina and then to Nevada. And I’ve said from the beginning we’re gonna do that.”
But what does it say when he’s leaving the state early?
“It says that I’m going to South Carolina. That’s what it says,” Biden replied."
Weak. Biden knew he was going to lose in New Hampshire and while that is not a good look, fleeing from a loss is not much better. Biden came in fifth place with 84% of poll results in at the time of writing this. He did worse in New Hampshire than he did in Iowa. Wow, he better hope he can turn it around in South Carolina or else this could be the beginning of the end for Sleepy Joe.
